The sheriff’s office received the call that a bear was stuck inside a vehicle over the weekend.

During the deputy’s first attempt to get the bear out of the vehicle, the sow ended up closing the door while she was still inside.

Two bear cubs were spotted in trees near the car while the sheriff’s office worked to free the sow from the car.
